Son, when you participate in sporting events, it's not whether you win or lose: it's how drunk you get.

TMQ is generally well written, often hilarious and definitely worth reading if you are into sports. But he does right like million word columns, which is fun if you enjoy sports/his writing, but a bit of a downside if you just want to skim through to see what's funny. There were quite a few good things in this article, but the best was this

"Standard & Poor's Call for U.S. Debt to be Reduced by 10 Quintillion Zimbabwean Dollars: In Zimbabwe this winter, the country's 100 trillion-dollar bill was trading for about $5 US. This means that expressed in Zimbabwean currency, the United States national debt is 240 septillion dollars."

It's funny because it's true.

That is funny, but actually, the whole article is barely nine thousand words.

yes, that million word column lines might have an exaggeration, but the article is significantly longer than most articles i link too. I might read really long articles, but i figure most people don't have the time/interest to read such long articles and so i don't link them.
